Treating Commonly Encountered Painful Complaints in the ED

Have an attendance code?

Thank you for attending. We hope to see you at the 40th Annual Meeting in Scottsdale, AZ in March 2024!


Pain is the most common complaint encountered in the Emergency Department (ED). Opioids are commonly used but the Emergency Medicine Shared Interest Group (SIG) believes in maximizing the use of multimodal pain regimens to treat commonly encountered painful complaints in the ED. To achieve this, they are conducting a webinar where pain and Emergency Medicine-trained doctors will discuss their tricks and tips for treating patients while being judicious with opioid use. The webinar will feature a discussion panel where speakers will present different painful scenarios and discuss how to treat them while presenting the latest research.

Learning Objectives
-Discuss methods to treat patients presenting to the ED with painful conditions who are on buprenorphine therapy.
-Discuss different ultrasound-guided interventional procedures that can be offered for a variety of painful conditions such as low back pain, radiculopathy, rib fractures, and renal colic.
-Discuss the role of ketamine and lidocaine infusions for various painful conditions that present to the emergency department.
